Holiday Benders....FENDER-Benders

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is over and tomorrow is December. What in the world!?!

We are back home and things are even more hectic than our "normal" schedule usually allows. Neeley and I were involved in a bit of a fender-bender on our way back home from Arkansas.

Ok, it was more than a fender-bender.

Since I don't have pics of the actual scene, let me paint the picture for you.

Picture my Equinox on 40 W followed by a t-i-n-y Chevy Extreme pickup with a bed full of dead deer and hauling a 4-wheeler on a trailer.

Have that in your head?

Ok, now picture the entire front half of that tiny lil pickup crammed underneath my Equinox and my Equinox jacked up at a 45 degree angle.

Will spare you the whole story, but yep, it did happen, and we lived to tell about it. Neeley, Anna Banana, and I walked away with sore necks and backs but now we're in the process of scheduling the cosmetic surgery for Ellie the Equinox.

Thank you for your prayers!

Fundraising Fun

Whew! Is it already time for Thanksgiving? Wait...what? October is over? And August and September, too? I feel sooooooooooooo behind on everything now that I am back in school full time. Sound familiar? I felt that way when I worked full time too. :)

Neeley's schedule has been full of fundraising fun as she prepares for her upcoming conferences. We spent several hours at Purple Swirl on Friday evening.

And then enjoyed our time last night at Orange Leaf. We certainly love our froyo!!! :)

These fundraisers were her first actual on-site events but she is working with some other businesses to hopefully earn some more funding to register for the conferences. Anyone have any odd jobs for her to do? :)

Soooooooooooo proud of that girls' entrepreneurial efforts! She has scheduled all of the fundraiser fun all on her own, emailing and calling businesses, and mailing letters. Please keep your fingers crossed for this girly girl to attend them to further her interest in medicine and science.

Here's to more goofy fun. Or, probably we were a bit delirious by this time after 5 hours at Orange Leaf! :)

THANK YOU from us to you for your support!! :)
